Fort Smith, AR -

Forecasters have issued an ice storm warning the rest of Sunday, covering an area from near Hugo, Okla., to east of Fort Smith, Ark.

The warning is in effect until 6 p.m. The counties covered in Oklahoma are Choctaw, LeFlore and Pushmataha. In Arkansas, Franklin and Sebastian counties are covered.

Up to a quarter-inch of ice could accumulate by 6 p.m. in the area, and up to a half-inch of sleet could accumulate by midnight in the northern portion of the warning area.

Forecasters say travel will be dangerous, if not impossible. Tree limbs and power lines could come down, too, potentially causing power outages.
